Montana’s state parks, fishing access sites, and wildlife management areas are a recreation paradise for residents and visitors alike. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks encourages all visitors to enjoy these outstanding resources during the upcoming July 4th holiday, but leave the fireworks at home.
State law says no one may set off fireworks on any FWP lands from April 1 until the first Saturday in September. In addition, other FWP properties, such as some state parks, are closed year round to fireworks.
Anyone using fireworks on FWP lands may be charged with a misdemeanor that can result in a fine up to $500.
